Who are the speakers?
Paul David Tripp is a pastor, author and conference speaker. He is the president of Paul Tripp Ministriesand works to connect the transforming power of Jesus Christ to everyday life. This vision has led Paul to write 17 books on Christian living, produce 14 teaching series and travel around the world speaking at events. Paul's driving passion is to help people understand how the gospel of Jesus Christ speaks with practical hope into all the things people experience in this broken world. Throughout his life, Paul has planted a church, founded a Christian school, wrote worship songs and toured with a Christian band. He was a faculty member at the Christian Counseling and Educational Foundation (CCEF) for many years, a lecturer in Biblical Counseling at Westminster Theological Seminary, a Visiting Professor at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary and a pastor at Tenth Presbyterian Church. He lives in Philadelphia and is hopelessly in love with his wife, Luella. They have four grown children.
Dave Harvey serves as the Executive Director of Sojourn Network, a Teaching Pastor at Summit Church, and the founder of Am I Called. Despite having authored a number of helpful books, articles, and blogs over the years, Dave feels he is not particularly imaginative, and is not nearly the catalytic change-agent he would like to be. He has a remarkable wife (Kimm) of 34 years and four adult children. He’s lost about 200 lbs. over the last 20 years, primarily by gaining and losing the same 10 pounds. He likes praise too much and wishes he used his time better because he wants to read more than he does. Ministry over the last 30+ years has delivered incredible and undeserved joys for him, not to mention unimaginable sorrow. Whatever bitter taste there may be, though, has made Christ indescribably sweet to him.
